Several months ago, we covered jsTree, a promising new tree component built on top of jQuery. It’s since gained its own website and is nearing a 1.0 release. There have been a few changes since we last wrote about it:
* A lot of focus on the JSON data source
* Native async support (meaning correct data loading, event handling, etc).
* In the last public version there is a simple instance manager.
* The instance manager enabled full multitree support – node dragging between trees, with language cleanup (if languages differ), and also and most important – the receiving tree’s dragrules are respected.
* There have been a lot of bugfixes, optimizations, enhancements.
It’s coming along nicely since the initial story; give it another look and pass on bug reports and feedback to Ivan at his blog prior to the 1.0 release.
